of you coming here and give us such a good speech in the middle of the summer. my question would be addressing the china case. based on the panelists' observation of the president's limited record on trade policy, what kind of -- do you think -- what kind of decision do you think the president is going to make on this case? do you think he's going to grant the remedy on this case and why? >> okay. guys, we're away from big principles right to the nitty-gritty. who would like this? >> if i had to guess, i would guess that there is someremedy. but it's really hard. and here's why. i could tell you a story that goes in neither direction. i could say well, they faced a similar conflict when it came to the name china as a currency manipulator. it was repeated, and it was the same conflict between the -- what the chinese government clearly wanted, and he opted to net -- not name china of currency manipulator in april. on the one hand, if you could say that that is really telling us where they're true preferences log. again, they will face similar choices. or you could say that put them

in treatment and a lot of the advances in pharmaceuticals, come from the u.s. paying so much money, and if the u.s. creates a new system, how is it that those types of extremely advanced pharmaceutical development to get paid for? how do the canadian citizens pay for it when they go to the mikheil clinic, for instance? i think the states might be better this -- when they go to the mayo clinic, for instance? the cutting edge of medicine, how will that get paid for? >> well, i agree that u.s. institutions in the united states that are top notch, that are the top of the world, the mayo clinic and some of them, and you need to keep that, because it is very important research, and you are doing some things that we are not doing in canada, but if the canadian citizens want to go to the mayo clinic, they have to pay out of their pockets to do that because it is not covered, or, at least, the park that would be covered is very small compared to the real cost, so people are paying out of their pockets if they want to have that, he but these are four very specific things that could not be do
